When we chatted with François Nars last spring after his heralded return to the world of backstage beauty, he was just as excited to talk to us about cameras as concealers. The face painter, who moonlights as a shutterbug, has published two different photography books and will be debuting his third effort next month. “It’s the same approach,” Nars says of his favorite mediums. “When you make up someone you want them to feel good and beautiful. With photography, it’s the same: Make the light beautiful, have fun.” 15×15, as his new tome is called, will be available for 30 days only when it bows in mid-November, and there’s a countdown to its release currently in progress at www.15x15project.com. The celebrity portraits in the new book channel iconic images, people, and emotions while giving some face time (or nail time, as the case may be) to a classic Nars product. That would be Nars Dovima lacquer on Marc Jacobs, who is re-enacting a sixties-era Richard Avedon photo above. Other friends of the brand, including Isabella Rossellini, Naomi Campbell, Daphne Guinness, and Olivier Theyskens, also make cameos. Something to add to your holiday wish list, for sure. [WWD]
Last night presented us with an unprecedented opportunity to compare the merits of the brick-red-verging-on-berry pout. And so, without further ado, do you prefer Isabella Rossellini’s minimal matte stain at the Toronto Film Festival or the high-shine opaque lipstick Charlize Theron sported to the launch of the new designers floor at Saks Fifth Avenue? (We know, we know. It’s hard to be impartial when Rossellini is involved, but try your best).
